Everything's Coming Up Simpsons Ep. 147: Two Bad Neighbors w/ Scott Gairdner

This week, Scott Gairdner (Podcast: The Ride, Moonbeam City) joins us in the studio to talk about Two Bad Neighbors. In 1992, President George Bush famously gave a campaign speech declaring he wanted to have American families be “a lot more like the Waltons and a lot less like the Simpsons.” This episode, which aired in 1996, was inspired by the animosity towards the show by the Bushes. Of course, the episode paints Bart as "bad little boy," and makes us considers what made "The Simpsons" so dangerous to children … this is meta-humor gold right here. Plus, Scott tells us how the theme parks from Springfield rank, and why he's obsessed with Simpsons dvd commentaries. Why don’t you come over and listen to this podcast, and we’ll have nachos? And then some beer.

We're doing something a little different this week! Al Jean – yes, that AL JEAN – swings by the Max Fun studios to discuss the short-lived cult classic series "The Critic."  In 1994, Al co-created the series alongside Mike Reiss. The animated show follows the life of film critic Jay Sherman, voiced Jon Lovitz. He'll break it down for us, including: why the show was originally planned to be a live action sitcom, how the series came to be, what it was like to work with Lovitz, and why the premise of the show would only work in the 90's.  Plus, he'll also sprinkle in some Simpsons trivia throughout our conversation, and discuss how he thinks "The Simpsons" series might end. Trust us, this episode doesn't stink!
